Paul Gosar (1958–) is a dipshit from Arizona currently in the United States House of Representatives. He is a right-wing populist, an enabler of racists, anti-Semites, fascists, you name it. Gosar is obsessed with America's supposed "white demographic core."[1][2]

He is a manchild crybaby snowflake who apparently doesn't like being called a white nationalist even though he is an enabler for their cause.[3]

Just like 1920s KKK leader Hiram Wesley Evans,Wikipedia Gosar used to be a dentist.[4]

Hate rallies[edit]

In 2017, he tried blaming the left for the Unite the Right rally, and promoted the anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that George Soros was responsible.[5] He unsurprisingly supported conspiracy theories alleging that Donald Trump won the 2020 U.S. presidential election, and he also appeared in the March for Trump/Save America rally that preceded the 2021 U.S. Capitol riot.[6] After the riot, he called the participants "peaceful patriots" who were being "harassed" by the Department of Justice.[7]

America First Caucus[edit]

Gosar formed a congressional "America First" caucus to promote "Anglo-Saxon traditions."[8][9][10][11] Following expected enormous backlash,[12][13] he tried to run away from his involvement.[14][15]

His siblings hate him[edit]

Six of his 9 siblings endorsed his opponents.[16] Yeah, 'nuff said. They turned against him since 2018, endorsing his opponent.[17][18]

Defending Nick Fuentes[edit]

Gosar spoke at a white supremacist event organized by neo-Nazi Nick Fuentes in February 2021, and then claimed he actually opposes "white racism".[19] If you don't know how awful Fuentes is, just read Benny Johnson's Twitter thread on him.[20]

And guess what happened a few months later? Gosar held a fundraiser with Fuentes. No, seriously.[21] And what was his excuse? He said he had no knowledge of the fundraiser.[22] This is despite a literal flyer featuring both scums.[23]

Even National Review hates Gosar.[24]

Other crap[edit]

In 2015, he was the only member of Congress to not attend Pope Francis's address. Why? Because Pope Francis talked about climate change. He has also promoted the birther conspiracy.[16]

He once sent a barrage of tweets to spell out "Epstein didn't kill himself."[25][26] He has also tweeted pictures with weird green lines going through himself, political opponents, and landscape features.[27]
